Ireland’s Gilmore Says EU Treaty Changes Aren’t ‘Necessary’

October 24, 2011

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Irish Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore said his government isn’t in favor of changes to European Union treaties that are being considered as part of a solution to the eurozone debt crisis.

“It is our view as a country that that is not necessary, and that it is possible to do the measures within the existing treaties,” Gilmore said today in an interview with Dublin-based broadcaster RTE. “The issues facing the euro and the European economy need to be dealt with now rather than somewhere further down the road after there is treaty change.”
